I saw my OB/GYN today..

There's something in the universe against me this week...

Lets back up, Thursday I was hospitalized due to a bad bout of diverticulitis. I was there until Sunday. I was released and then came home and I was feeling better...for about 12 hours. Then I got way worse. I called the doctor, she said go back to the er. Waited four hours to see a doctor. They wanted to admit me but were out of beds. They would have had to transfer me back to the hospital I was at originally - two hours away. I declined the transfer due to the fact that in less than 12 hours I was set to see my doctor anyway. In the mean time my job was threatened, and I was a wreck. I went to the doctor and she put me on bed rest until further notice, at least until my appointment next week.

I went to the OB/GYN today, and somehow, the office forgot to let the nurses and doctors know that I was no longer pregnant. I walk in to an exam suite with the ultra sound machine and all these cute baby things set up. The nurse looks at me and says "How're you feeling? Any sickness? etc.." I was thinking...OH MY GOD, but I just said "No, I'm okay...Did the office tell you guys that I'm no longer pregnant?" the poor nurse turned about seventeen shades of red and quickly excused herself and brought the doctor back and they asked me questions and yeah...after talking to her a while basically the thing she kept saying is that I'm lucky...and fertile. The fact that I've had two pregnancies since October means I'm super fertile, but I'm just 'unlucky' and that my two have ended in miscarriages. That I should be "GRATEFUL" that I'm not a woman who's had sex every other day for three years...I understand her point but it was too much.

EVERYTHING has been been too much this week. ugh.

      I'm sorry for your losses and for people not saying very appropriate things to you.
        People can unintentionally be jerks sometimes, I've noticed, especially about miscarriage. I told one of my friends the other day that I work here on Moms.com and he said.. "But you're not a mom yet!" I was like dude... I've lost two babies in the past year. You know what he said? "Hmmm." I'm mouthy though so I said, "That's your cue to say sorry!" ...I think people who haven't been there maybe don't get it.

        I hope things look up for you soon. I hope you heal well and everything works out in your favor.
